The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Specimens we can test for DNA

The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the people being tested. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory. Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone's DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

Experts Say...

Local attorneys explain why fathers should establish paternity right away.

Voelker & Kairys are attorneys that serve North Huntingdon, PA and Westmoreland County. The law firm explains the rights of both parents when they have a child but are not married. "For mothers, their marital status does not affect their physical or legal custody of their baby in any way," the law firm stated. "It's the same for fathers; their rights as fathers don't decrease if they're not married to the child's mother. However, if the mother does not want him in the child's life, he's going to need to establish paternity if he wants to take part in child support or child custody."

Tibbott & Richardson are also attorneys serving North Huntingdon and Westmoreland County. They say, "Don't wait too long to establish your paternal rights. If the birth mother and child live in a positive home with a third party, and/or the birth mother marries, you will need a father's rights attorney, as it will become harder to gain legal and physical custody rights to your child."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in North Huntingdon, PA

Establishing paternity benefits the child by providing the child access to financial support, health care benefits, social security, inheritance, and military benefits.

In North Huntingdon, PA, paternity needs to be established when an unmarried couple has a child. This can be done voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity, a voluntary legal form that states the man is the child's father. If one parent does not agree to sign the form, or if either parent questions paternity, DNA testing can be requested to determine paternity.

If DNA testing has been done and the man still denies paternity or either parent refuses to sign the Acknowledgement of Paternity, they will go to court. An Order of Paternity will be issued involuntarily, and the court will make the final decision.
